DCS Series Flight Sims / Re: Top Hook contest - Results

video is sweet. what i was totally impressed with was the haul-ass right back to the cat without effort. i am an old lady trying to get across the street.

crazy. ED's own forum rules essentially prohibits posting of this sort of data. i suppose the defendant's answer that he needed them for work was, at best, honest. on the flip side do people really think that any of these fight sims are remotely possible without official literature? it is not info gathered by someone looking at the plane from behind airshow barriers. the lack of evidence may allow him to walk free but might be without a job with ED at least.

i get many of the AC and agree that it is hard to get good at any of them if one does not concentrate on one or a few at most. many times i get the AC to just pilot them. "first become a pilot then become a warrior". by what i have read transition from F18 to F16 systems will be simpler.

Hah. It's amazing to me how much damage the Stennis can take in the stern. :o

i found an iteration of this Excel file. Essentially you use the formula =(CELL/1000)*60 on the UTM seconds or multiply by .06.

should be a lot easier when they do data link and targeting pod.

no they were not red... there was a thread about it... 
apparently there is a thread in dcs forums about them working on the bugs.
it is probably up there with the most complicated aircraft,, but fun... IMHO

Probable solution!!!!!


Guys just have this issue with a friend of mine he is using a saitek X52, PLease check game controls under Communications theres an REQUEST AWACS HOME BASE with Lwin+U assigned, same as Sensor Select FWD!!!!! this caused an issue with the X52 not knowing what to do... Remove that Lwin+U from the REQUEST AWACS HOME BASE

I was always able to use my Hotas Warthog for activating IRMV

He removed that double key bind and he was able to select IRMV

I dont have issues with it and my friend any more

With the testing I have done I am able to hit a structure not much bigger than a tank.  You need to have 3 things.

1.  You need to be able to see the target in the F10 map so you can be sure you are picking the right impact point.  Example, if you try and look at a Road Outpost structure it doesnt show on the map (you just see the target icon) and the icon isn't actually on the structure so you can't use it as an aim point.

2.  You need to have two digits after the seconds decimal in order to get the accuracy you need.

3.  You need to be around 20k'+ in alt.
 

here lies the true issue. the game does not produce the final two decimal digits except for lasing correct? i saw an intensive video of a guy in a gazelle taking lasing info from a minimum of 3 vantage points to produce the decimal degrees.

dont read this too early in the morning :D i guess best we can do is have a FACA but that misses the point. without data link between AC it boils down a bunch of unsquelched banter. now question is does ruining the runway eliminate the use by the enemy? DCS modeled that is.

Just dropped $70, mig 19 (used some bonus) KA 50 and the GPS system.  Oh course I will not be flying theses for a while as I am saturated..

MattE

Amen! Saturated is a good word for it. Flaming Cliffs 3 - F-5E - F/A-18C - MiG-15 - F-86F - A-10C - P-51D - A-4E-C - AV8B - MIG-19P - F-14D haha.

not sure if this was answered yet. i was thinking about it and maybe the issue with accuracy was that the decimal degrees were not input? this can result in the coords being 100' off. wags video did the setup without the decimal degrees,, this help?

hmm. i am going to create a new mission from scratch to see if i have any issue. i do not think the mission would matter. but at least i am doing other targets with other coords. i will let you know.

hello top.. did you remember elevation? in my example on the nellis map the targets were 3025 / 3117 elevation. if this is not correct of course you will be way off. same idea as laser targeting. lasing to incorrect spot will cause bomb to miss.

agreed. Wags vid was easy as pie. all i did was use my training mission and get coords from the targets. i made a litte Excel sheet or you can just put it on a piece of paper.
